Plant Information

The Arum family is famous for wide-leaved foliage plants with unique flowers. The color here comes from two beautiful parts: The deep green wide leaves are spotted white a lot like some calla lilies. And more color comes from curious stacks of shiny orange berries the plants hold for weeks. A great plant for botanical interest in the garden.

      Comments about American Meadows Arum italicum:

      I planted 6 of these in my shade area. 3 emerged after a very long wait. 3 did not. AM stood behind their replacement policy and I am now waiting for the new plantings to emerge. It's been 2 weeks and so far nothing.

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
